If you’re coming to this article hoping for a list detailing exactly how much time it will take to repair your broken appliance, you might be disappointed. Some problems can be fixed in a matter of minutes, while others take multiple visits to resolve––and there’s usually no way of knowing which scenario we’ll be dealing with until we arrive at your home and take a look at the problem in person.
Here are the factors at play when it comes to determining how long an appliance repair will take:
1. Appliance Repair Service Availability
When you call an appliance repair service you expect them to be able to come out right away. That’s not always the case, though––they may be closed on evenings or weekends, then when they do open again, they have a backlog of calls to catch up on from when they were closed.
Appliance Repair 512 is different. Unlike most other appliance repair services, our business is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. That means we’re more able to respond to service calls in a timely manner. Our expert appliance technicians will usually be out to repair your appliance the same day you call. We repair refrigerators and freezers, washers and dryers, dishwashers, ovens, ranges, and stoves––even your air conditioner!
2. The Complexity of the Problem
Some problems are easier to deal with than others. A leaking dishwasher with a faulty seal can be a quick fix; a refrigerator with a broken compressor is a more involved repair. We can’t tell you if you’re looking at a five minute repair or a five hour repair until we can inspect your appliance and assess the damage. Sometimes we can diagnose the problem just by running the appliance in question and seeing what the issue is, but other times, we may need to dismantle it to do a thorough evaluation.
3. The Parts Needed
At Appliance Repair 512, we try to keep a wide variety of parts in stock in our warehouse for most popular appliance brands. That said, it is impossible for us to stock every possible part for every possible appliance at all times. In such cases, we may need to order the appliance part we need for your repair.
Whenever it is an option, we choose to expedite shipping, even having the part needed overnighted to us so we can get your appliance up and running again as soon as possible. There are times, however, when we need to wait a few days or even a few weeks for the replacement part to arrive. We know that this can be frustrating, but rest assured, we always do our best to take care of your broken appliance as quickly as we can.
How to Make Appliance Repair Go Faster
There are some simple steps you can take on your end to make the appliance repair process seamless. Before your appointment with us, gather your warranty information, your appliance manual, and the model and serial number and have them ready for our technician to review. Clear out the area around the appliance and make sure there’s a path to and from the appliance to your front door. Keep pets and children out of the way while we work.
